It's a testament to how far this website has fallen if you ask me.
It's not really ATS' fault mind you, because this site is just a microcosm of what's happening to critical thinking across the world in general,
and especially in America.
Look at it this way: in October 2008 when Zeitgeist Addendum was released, the subsequent
got 150 flags and over 20 pages of largely constructive responses.
Then in November Obama was elected president.
That's when this website started to become overrun by political trolls who were drawn here because they get all their anti-establishment viewpoints
from Glenn Beck/Fox News/fundamentalist Republicans - i.e. people who will say and do anything they can to protect
the crooked status quo.
Now here we are - just over 2 years later and there are loads of other so-called "conspiracy theorists" denouncing Zeitgeist as nothing but "New
Age Communist propaganda" (to usher in the new fruity version of the NWO or something).
One of the best parts in this new film is at the 2hr 12m mark when Peter Joseph takes a hilarious jab at these sort of automatons.
Still it amazes me how much this backwards brainless groupthink has taken over some conspiracy circles.
Zeitgeist is much more about getting people to think critically about the world they live in today, rather than just have them fall mindlessly in love
with some warm fuzzy vision of tomorrow.
But obviously critical thinking is still way too hard for some people. Unfortunately the only difference between those who are "not awake" these
days and some conspiracy theorists who think
they are is that one is a set of sheeple, and the other is a set of paranoid sheeple.
